Oh, oh, oh!
And I'm Possum.
Oh, that was such fun.
Well, it might be time for us to go into the garden.
Oh, hello everyone.
Sally, I really enjoyed pushing you in the go-kart.
It was such good fun.
Yes. You pushed me a very long way.
It was a great push.
I wonder if I could pull it.
Would you like to help me in the garden?
I'm just going to put my boots on.
Oh, you sit down, I'll get them.
Sally, would you like some help?
I could push them on for you.
Oh, no, I can do that.
I can pull them on myself, thanks.
I'll pull them on.
Oh, that's great.
Possum, what's this rope for?
What's all this?
Sally, I wanted to move my tree closer to your house.
So, I was thinking that pushing my tree would be a bit too hard, so I decided to pull it and that's why I've got the rope around the tree.
Sally, I pulled and pulled and pulled, but as strong as I am, the tree didn't move.
Sally, can you help me?
Well, look at how big your tree is.
It has very big branches.
It would be very heavy and it will have nice, long roots that won't be able to move.
I don't think we could move your tree, but I'm happy to try.
OK, come on.
I can't do it.
It's stuck. It can't move.
Ooh, I know. I'll go around the tree and I'll push.
You can pull.
Off you go.
It's stuck Sally.
Yes, it IS stuck.
It will have to stay there.
I know something that you could push.
What is it?
Have a look over there.
You could push that into the garden.
You are funny.
OK, I'll help.
Look, it's Skip.
Oh, it's such a lovely day, isn't it?
Yes, it's a lovely day.
I love standing up here and enjoying the breeze.
What are you up to?
Oh, well, I'm learning lots about pull and push, and all the different ways that you can push and pull.
Oh, even like climbing up my tree.
I was pulling with my hands and pushing with my feet.
It's like on a boat.
There's lots of climbing and pulling and pushing, especially to pull the sails up.
Watch – I'll show you.
Oh, that looks great.
I remember how sails work.
The wind pushes the sail and the sails make the boat move.
Well, I have to go.
There's a bowerbird nest that I want to keep an eye on.
I think the eggs might be about to hatch, so I want to go check it out.
Ok, see you.
I'm going to go help Sally.
Ok, but be careful that gravity doesn't pull you down too quickly.
Ooh, ooh, ooh!
Oh Sally, luckily you caught it.
I was up there chatting with Skip and then I knocked the apple down.
Luckily, you caught it and didn't hit you on the head.
I got a bit of a fright seeing it fall down.
It was good that I caught it.
Sally, Skip was talking about something.
What is that?
Funny you should ask me that.
We've been talking about push and pull.
They're called forces.
There are all sorts of forces around us.
One of those forces is gravity.
Gravity means when we're standing on the earth and we jump, we don't float away, do we?
We come back down to the earth because of gravity.
This is why everything stays on the earth.
Just like when you were at the top of your tree and you dropped the apple.
It didn't float away, did it?
It came straight down to the ground.
Oh, but Sally, I can't see gravity, can I?
That's right, you can't see it.
It's like the wind.
We know it's there all around us, but we can't actually see it.
Oh, that makes sense.
It's like when my tree sways in the breeze.
Yes, that's right.
We have done some great work in the garden.
I think we're all finished, and now I would like a cold drink of water.
Oh, hang on Sally.
I need to close my door first.
I closed my door by pulling it but to open it, I need to push it.
Let's look at your door Sally.
Ooh, yes, let's look.
What happens if you go inside?
Oh, come on.
Right, now, look, Sally.
Push to close.
And…pull to open.
Ah, that's great.
I think I need some paper, so I can write 'pull' and 'push' on them, so that everyone knows the right way to open and close the door.
What a great idea.
Let's do that now.
We can make some signs to put up.
I'll pour the drinks.
I'll get the craft box.
Ok, let's go.
Now, how do I write 'pull' and 'push'?
Oh, well, I can show you.
P-U-L-L is 'pull'.
P-U-S-H is 'push'.
Oh, doesn't that look good?
I've just thought of something.
Have a close look Possum.
All three of you have something in common.
Yes, that's right Possum, you all start with the letter P.
Right, how do I write 'open' and 'close'?
Alright, I can show you that.
Ok, I'll write them down.
Oh, that looks great Possum!
I really do like that.
So, Sally, to open the door we need to pull it open and to close, we need to push, close.
Now Sally, there is one more very important door in here.
Oh, that's great Possum.
Why don't we watch some children learning about different things you can push and pull?
Ok, let's watch.
Oh, that was great!
Oh, yeah, that looked like a lot of fun.
Sally, I need to go outside and make some more signs for the rest of the doors, ok?
Oh, that's a great idea.
You go and have fun Possum.
That says 'push'.
Oh, and this one.
Quick, and over this side.
Oh, that says 'push' as well.
Yeah and now, Sally, there's one more.
I think that should say 'push' because you push me in the go-kart.
No, no, I've been thinking hard about this and I've figured something out.
Oh, you're going to pull!
Yes, sit down.
In you get.
I really enjoyed that.
Sally, I enjoyed pushing you and pulling you.
That was super fun.
Yes Possum, you've learnt a lot about push and pull, haven't you?
Well, our time is up.
Thanks for watching.
See you next time!
Now, Sally, my turn.
Turn it round.
Here we go.
What makes things move? Sometimes we push and sometimes we pull and then sometimes, things just seem to fall. There is a lot for Possum to learn about pushes and pulls.
